Lens mounts are precision machined parts of a camera. When a lens binds, there is a problem. Since you've not had a problem on your other camera with your lenses, something is wrong with the 6D lens mount. I suspect the camera has been dropped, or taken a hard hit. You're lucky the seller will take the camera back. Of course it could have been damaged during shipping.

Hey Ed,

I've noticed my 6D is noticeably more snug than other bodies I've used. I got mine new from B&H and it has no damage, so I wonder if it's in an effort to ensure weather sealing? It seems like some people do report the same concerns.

Thanks for the reply, that makes sense, driftyyy. But there was a sense of unsmoothness when mounting a lense. Snugness and tightness I'm ok with, but what I felt made me uneasy.

Bill, I agree with you. My T2i isn't weather sealed or anything. I can line up a lens on the camera mount, turn the camera so it points up and gravity holds the lens against the mount...I can then smoothly turn the lens until it clicks into place. There is no wobble or anything once it is mounted. I'm not sure about the other 6D...I'm really not, the seller got it back and said that his lenses worked fine on it, just as they had before he shipped it. He was straight-up a good guy throughout it all.

I guess I will find out this Thursday how my lens collection works on a 6D straight off the showroom floor. :)

My 6D mount acts just like the one on my 20D - the lenses slide into place with a 'normal' satisfying solidity but there is no grating or grinding.
There must be something amiss with the mount, so i'm glad you were ablate return it.
I'm sure you'll feel a difference with the new camera.

Tomorrow I get to see how my lenses mount on the new 6D coming from Adorama. <BIG SMILE>

Let us all know how the new camera performs. I really like my 6D. I'm now struggling with the focus on the 7D Mark II. For your 6D, I suggest you pick up a copy of "Digital Field Guide for the 6D" It really shortened the learning curve. I can't wait until the book on the 7D Mark II comes out. The manual on the CD is over 500 pages.

I'm interested in hearing how the lenses mount on the new 6D as well. I picked up a used (13k actuations) 6D a few weeks back and have been loving it. It definitely is a bit more difficult to mount the lenses than it was on my T4i, but it's nothing like what you described.

Ok, I've tinkered with the camera off and on today....I LOVE IT!!!!! :)

The mount is very snug but lenses tighten smoothly. I feel at ease when mounting a lens to the body. I've got a learning curve ahead, but I'm going to enjoy the ride. ;)

One quick question that has nothing to do with lens mounting....you know, since I've got your attention. :) Does the 6D have a proximity sensor that turns off the shooting display on the back LCD when you use the viewfinder? The T2i has one, but I'm beginning to think the 6D doesn't.  ????????

Thanks!
Ed

The rebel bodies have this, but above that they do not iirc. My 60d didn't have one either. The reason being is the rebels rely on the back lcd for the majority of controls as they do not have a top lcd. More advanced bodies such as the 6d have a top lcd for most controls so the back lcd is off the majority of the time. Therefore it is not necessary to have a proximity sensor.

That is what I figured. I had gotten use to using the back lcd on my T2i so I guess I'll go back to how it used to be when all the controls were on top and the only info on the back of the camera was the end flap from a box of film. ;) What is really strange is that I had taken several mundane shots just checking out the 6D when suddenly I became aware of the lcd screen staying lit up...naturally I figured I had bumped something. :rolleyes: Ok, it's all good now...just another one of those "changes" everybody's been talking about lately around here.<grin>
